AVMS GmbH - history and vision for the future

The story of any business is part of its success and stories need to be told. Ours is now almost a quarter of a century old and we like to look back. We would like to share this with everyone and tell you with shining eyes about days gone by.

Our history and the management

Michael Weiland, coming from PIK AG, founded AVMS in Teltow near Berlin in 1995. In the first years AVMS concentrated on fixed installations in and around Berlin due to the origin of the company founder. Thus we were involved in the media-technical installations of the party headquarters of the CDU and the SPD. Since then, a great partnership has developed with Allianz Versicherung. Museums were equipped and much more….

In the following years, AVMS continued to develop and the rental business was also integrated. In 2001 AVMS became a member of the Karow Group and was an addition to the group for the Berlin market. The founder of AVMS died in the same year after a short serious illness.

Due to September 11, 2001 and the economic crisis triggered by it, the Karow Group was not able to maintain its previous success and the business model had to be dissolved. The parent company in the Karow Group, Karow TV, had to file for insolvency in 2003.

AVMS GmbH thus set off again on its own and under new management on a very successful journey from that day on.

Knud Hackradt, Matthias Wolf and Janosch Auth took over AVMS and opened the Frankfurt office in January 2003. This was a milestone that was to change everything from now on.

After two Siemens world tours, countless trade fair stands, events and permanent installations for Telekom in Bonn and Frankfurt, among others, the company continued to develop.

Until the world economic crisis in 2008, a truss and lighting department was thus built up, through the takeover of Createc in AVMS. The very diverse clientele secured AVMS further years of normality in 2008 and 2009 and the crisis largely passed the company by. Matthias Wolff will leave the company at the beginning of 2008.

In 2015, the Swiss Wedia AG joined the AVMS family and became AVMS Schweiz AG.

In 2016, the ailing Panel5 in Hanover was taken over and integrated into the AVMS Group. Together with the shareholders Andre Kaschel and Martin Ruoff, the integration into the group took place without any problems. From then on, AVMS Hannover GmbH developed into another top location in the AVMS family.

In 2020, AVMS will be one of the top service providers in media and event technology with four locations and around 75 employees. The motto “Visions come true” from 2004, continued to be developed with enthusiasm. AVMS is now a 360° service provider that offers ideas and solutions in addition to technology from the fields.
